Hacker attack clamps down Twitter, Facebook experiences intermittent problems

A hacker attack Thursday shut down the fast-growing messaging service Twitter for hours, while Facebook experienced intermittent access problems.

Twitter said it suffered a denial-of-service attack, in which hackers command scores of computers to a single site at the same time, preventing legitimate traffic from getting through.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Remember that Twitter/Facebook/Myspace were the high ground for info-war during the abortive coup against the Democratically-elected government of Iran.

If "someone" is practicing how to paralyze the social networks (just one day after the US Marines blocked them from their own networks, I might add) then something big is about to happen and shutting down non-governmental forms of mass communication will be part of it.
